Testimonials

“My wife and I signed our daughter Shi-Ru up for English classes in June 2021, and it has been a very enjoyable and fulfilling learning journey for her. She really enjoys her lessons with Teacher Susan, and we have adjusted her other enrichment classes to continue with Teacher Susan for 2023.

For this year, we have also signed up our elder girl, Shi-Rui, for Creative Writing under Teacher Susan.

Lastly, we have chosen to pay the fees for both girls for the whole of the academic year 2023 in full. This is a testament to our confidence and trust in the Centre.”

Mr Soon

“My son has been with LCentral Bukit Timah since he was six years old. I am pleased and grateful to LCentral that his English proficiency is higher than that of his peers of the same age group. After he started his formal Primary 1 education, I have never needed to worry about his homework, tests, or exams. He takes on the same independently with ease and confidence.

Most importantly, he loves and looks forward to attending the LCentral classes and engaging with the dedicated staff/teachers. I will definitely let my son continue his schooling journey with LCentral.”

Ms Alicia Yeo

“I sent my children to LCentral as I find that their curriculum and materials are very good! I feel that their curriculum fully prepares my child for primary school as it not only teaches phonics, but also teaches grammar, speaking and writing skills.

LCentral teachers are patient in teaching my children and the front counter staff are also very friendly and approachable. Another plus point is that the classrooms are very new, bright, and clean! Definitely a conducive place for children to learn and develop!”

Mrs Ong

“All my 3 kids at LCentral for English tuition at Bedok. Location very strategic and near my home.

My P1 kid unable to read initially and LCentral has tremendously improved his reading. LCentral taught him the skill how to read the word.

My P3 & P5 kids also improved their writing skill for composition.

The best of all, each lesson they will send me an update of what had they learned so I can monitor the progress.”

Frequently Asked Question about Our CreativeWriting Programme

How long is a semester? / How many classes in a semester?

Each term consists of 11 lessons, with each lesson lasting for 90 minutes.

What is the class size?

Up to 10 students are enrolled into each class.

To achieve their learning goals, children require individual attention from the teacher as well as opportunities to interact with their peers and be actively engaged in a positive classroom environment. Therefore, we offer small class sizes.

Can my child join any time or do they need to wait till a new term?

Our CreativeWriting programme is specifically designed with students in mind. This includes allowing them to enter at the most convenient time for them, even if that is not at the beginning of a term. This allows for greater flexibility and ensures that students can access our programme when they need to. In most cases, students can join at any time.

My child is weak in English. Will the class be too hard?

LCentral will conduct a comprehensive assessment to evaluate your child’s English proficiency before recommending the right programme to suit their learning needs.

Once enrolled in a class, LCentral teachers continually monitor each student’s performance and cater to their learning needs to keep them on track towards achieving their learning goals.
